Well, since I'm bummed about not being able to attend Bouchercon, I assuaged my sadness by...book shopping! Actually fate timed our warehouse book sale at work and the Elyria Library sale this past Thursday and Friday, respectively.
The stack of paperbacks on the left is from our sale at work, and the hard covers are from the library (if you can't see the library stickers on them). I have been listening to a Bill Pronzini "Nameless Detective" on audio book in my car, so when I found a few of his books I definitely grabbed those up. I'm also giving Wambaugh and Grippando each another shot, as you can probably see. When the books are only $1, you can give authors second and third tries!
And here is my prize find! A beautiful, first edition copy of Winter's Bone. It isn't a former library book. Someone must have donated it. But it is in perfect condition! I couldn't believe I was so lucky to find it!
I was talking to Lesa over at Lesa's Book Critiques, telling her that I have this disorder. I can't keep myself from buying books. I'm like a person who lived through the Depression and buys lots of food and stores it. I buy lots of books and store them! So, if the occasion ever arises that I can't leave my house for, oh say, two years...I won't run out of new books to read. I still have some from last year's library sale that I haven't gotten to...like I said, a disorder!
I better get to reading! Happy Reading to you!!
